Hom functor and arbitrary coproducts

Let $M$ be a finitely generated $R$-module. It's easy to check that, in this case, $\mathbf{Hom}(M,-)$ preserves infinite sums. Now suppose that $M$ is projective. Is the reciprocal true? That is, if ...

Basis for free modules over an affine domain

Let $A=k[x_1,\cdots,x_r]/I$ for some prime ideal $I$ and some field $k$. Consider the free $A$-module $A^n$. Question 1. Given an element $e\in A^n$, is there a method to tell whether $e$ can be ...

A weak Schur's lemma for non-semisimple finite dimensional algebras

Let $B \subseteq C$ be an inclusion of finite dimensional (associative) algebras over a field $k$. Assume that $C$ is a free $B$-module. Let $\bigoplus_i U_i$ be a decomposition of $B$ into ...

Lifting idempotents and projective coverings — reference request

Let $R$ be a (non-commutative, unital) ring with Jacobson radical $J$, write $\overline{R}=R/J$ and denote the quotient map $R\to \overline{R}$ by $a\mapsto \overline{a}$. It is easy to see that if ...

A module associated to an endomorphism of a vector bundle

Let $E$ be a vector bundle over a compact connected Hausdorff space $X$. To an endomorphism $\alpha \in End(E)$, we associate a $C(X)-$ module $\Gamma(E,\alpha)$ consisting of all $\beta\in End(E)$ ...
